Following media report on investigations of his past, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh has denied that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has never invited him, nor questioned him on any matter whatsoever since its inception.
Metuh in a statement signed Monday by his SA, Richard Ihediwa, hit that if indeed, the report was from the EFCC, “then they should note that only in a period of tyranny are people investigated on the pages of the newspapers as a prelude for abuse and violation of their freedom and rights under the law”.
The opposition’s publicist said it was instructive to observe that a mere media campaign of calumny did not in any way translate to any evidence of guilt, rather an evidence of infringement on the rights of the citizenry and manifestation of the reign of tyranny.
“In a democratic and civilized country, where there are issues that require investigations by such agencies, invitations are duly extended. However, to read daily of people being investigated in select newspapers betrays plots to portray them as guilty of fraud and crime, and targeted to convey the PDP as a corrupt party and the APC as party of Nigerians without sin.
“If we now have a system where citizens get to be investigated, tried and executed by planting stories in select newspapers, wherein then lies the need for our judicial process?” Metuh queried.
He however expressed hope that all parties concerned would be guided by due process at all times.
